They’re selling out fast, but I found five lookalikes.

Growing up, New Balance sneakers were strictly dad shoes — no, not the trendy kind Hailey Bieber styles, but literally the tennis shoes my dad would wear on a daily basis. They’d usually include a puffy logo, metallic details, and some sort of mesh fabric. I remember my dad telling me to put on my pair ahead of a 2000s Disneyland trip; I was bummed to say the least because all I wanted to wear were my platform flip-flops… oh how times have changed. New Balance is now anything but uncool, being that everyone from Blake Lively to Margot Robbie and Alessandra Ambrosio is wearing the brand — and Jennifer Aniston just proved that these kicks are still going strong.



Aniston was spotted in Los Angeles wearing a black coat, T-shirt, and light-wash jeans. She accessorized her look with a baseball cap, sunglasses, and woven crossbody bag, while her New Balance 327 sneakers captured the epitome of street style.

I own the exact cloud-like shoes, fawning over the silhouette’s retro design, suede upper, flared outsole, and grippy bottom. The fixed lace-up closure and springy feel allow me to conquer dance class, New York City treks, and the airport in confort. They’re so good, even Meghan Markle and Katie Holmes are devoted fans of the shoes. Due to their popularity, they’re almost sold out, but some stock is still left at Free People and Anthropologie. If you can’t find your size, New Balance has tons of great lookalikes available, and I rounded them up below.

5 Aniston-Inspired New Balance Sneakers

New Balance 237 V1 Classic Sneaker



The New Balance 237 V1 Classic Sneaker is almost a perfect match. Available in dozens of color combinations and sizes 5 to 12, the shoe includes a suede and mesh body, grooved outsole, extended bottom, and traditional lace-up closure. The old-school design would look great with slouchy jeans, a cropped hoodie, and a baseball cap, much like the way Aniston styled it.

New Balance 515 V3 Sneaker



The 515 V3 tennis shoe looks similar, though it takes the approach of a standard sneaker. Look forward to a tough leather and mesh upper, typical rubber outsole, toe lip, and an overall more sporty appearance. This option also comes in sizes 5 to 12 and a choice of 48 designs. With over 4,600 perfect ratings and a 32 percent-off discount during Amazon’s Big Spring Sale, it’s hard to beat this option.

That’s only the beginning of Aniston-inspired kicks; keep scrolling to discover more comfortable (and stylish!) New Balance tennis shoes.
